Data Loss Issue With AdWords Editor Upgrade to Version 7.0

18th Dec 2008 Paid Search, Google AdWords Less than a minute to read

Google have just announced the release of version 7 of AdWords Editor.

Having just upgraded and followed the instructions, as always, to back up before upgrading, I was dismayed to find that when I went to restore the account snapshot, my local unposted changes weren’t there.

In addition to this, the proposed changes just had all of the existing campaigns in the AdWords account I was working on flagged as deleted.

There is a known issue that Google have given details of here:

Upgrading to version 7.0 known issues. Sounds easy enough but unfortunately this didn’t work for me.

Normally, I always ensure that I’ve uploaded local changes first but given that the backup option is documented as an appropriate method, I assumed I would be safe to do so. I hope this post saves you from experiencing the same problem.
